uTorrent (also known as µTorrent) is a lightweight, powerful and very tiny BitTorent file transfer protocol client that is today used by over 132 million of users, making it without any doubt the most BitTorrent popular client that is by some measurements responsible for large percentage of total internet bandwidth each day. As for functionality, uTorrent is brimming with countless features and services that are tightly integrated into its very simple to use interface. This includes ability to download multiple files at once, setup your own BitTorrent sharing, monitor all aspects of download and upload connections, set up scheduled downloads, chance the number of peers you want to remain connected to, and many others.
History of uTorrent started in September of 2005, very quickly managing to promote its speed, versatility and ability to fully control all aspect of BitTorrent file management. This attracted millions of users, and enabled Swedish developer Ludvig Strigeus (creator of the popular emulator ScummVM) to regularly maintain this free and ad-supported client. Important point that enabled uTorrent to become so successful is its package. It is distributed on the web as a single executable file that is smaller than one megabyte, which makes it extremely portable and easy to use. Currently uTorrent supports Windows XP and newer.
User interface of uTorrent is minimal, and able to be customized and downsized all the way to the Micro-size that shows only the most important things as a small overlay on your Windows desktop.
